Colorado Rapids, Community mourn the passing of Marisa Colaiano

Commerce City, Colo. – The Colorado Rapids will wear black armbands during their matches on Wednesday, July 18 at Toronto FC and Saturday, July 21 at Real Salt Lake in honor of Marisa Colaiano, the club’s Senior Manager of Community Relations, who passed away on Tuesday as a result of complications from Multiple Sclerosis.


 “Our Rapids family lost a very special person this week,” said
 Colorado Rapids President Tim Hinchey. “Marisa was the
 consummate professional who made every person around her
 better. But more importantly, her spirit of generosity and kindness
 made a tremendous impact on everyone she touched. We will
 miss our friend.”

 Marisa joined Kroenke Sports & Entertainment in July 2002 and
 had served as the Rapids’ Manager of Community Relations for
 the past 10 years. Through her efforts and support of nonprofit
 and charitable organizations, Marisa positively affected the lives
 of countless children and families in our community.

 Marisa will be remembered and missed by all her current and
 former colleagues, players and coaching staffs, and friends for
 her friendly smile, her humility, determination, loyalty, and
 compassion, and her strength and huge heart.

 In lieu of flowers, Marisa’s family requests that donations be sent
 to:

 Mount Saint Vincent Home
 4159 Lowell Boulevard
 Denver, CO 80211
